With shades of pop, folk, rock, country, blues, jazz and new age spirituals, and anchored by his distinctively engaging voice, Charlie's songs have melodies that linger and lyrics that can open your heart. Taken separately, 'Awkward Dance' is a CD filled with well written and wonderfully sung pieces supported by the brilliant guitar playing of co producer John Hoy. His songs talk about love lost and found, spiritual awakening, living with an inner critic and Parkinson's disease. Taken together they form a chronicle of an emotional and spiritual journey toward greater healing.

'I was instantly struck, surprised and delighted by his voice. I found myself drawn into his lyrics by the compelling sound of that voice. Charlie really does show professional poise, talent and maturity in his arrangements and vocal style' Don St. Clair Heartsong Review 'Charlie Nimovitz is facing a huge challenge -- Parkinson's Disease. His voice and lyrics were powerful, heartfull, and healing before. Now they are vastly more. His challenge has become a blessing for us all.' --Barry Vissell, MD and Joyce Vissell, RN, MS, authors of The Shared Heart, The Heart's Wisdom, and Meant To Be. ' Charlie's album contains quite a few tunes that I can listen to over and over again. For me, albums like this are few and far between, especially in this day and age. Great songs sung soulfully, produced tastefully.' D.R. 'I just have to tell you that never in my 35 years has any music touched me, guided me and left me feeling so positive. Your music is a daily part of my life.' S. J. 'Charlie's music touches me like no one else's. While there is a lot of 'feel good' music out there, what is unique about Charlie's music is that it speaks straight to me and makes me feel good about myself. And that's magic.' R.J. ''Charlie's new CD 'Awkward Dance' is anything but awkward. It is a wonderful blend of inspirational and heart opening songs that lead the listener on a journey of introspection, awareness, and just plain fun. The arrangements, production, and carefully crafted song writing add up to a CD that will be listened to over and over, sung along with, and shared with friends. This CD is a must have!'
